Blooming In The Afterlife: The Posies

Mac Randall, launch.com, 16 August 2000

IF YOU MEASURE a band's activity by the complexity of its release schedule, then you'd have to conclude that the year 2000 has been an incredibly busy one for Seattle's finest powerpop auteurs, the Posies. First, in February, there was a live album, Alive Before The Iceberg, which went a long way toward capturing on disc the group's frenetic onstage attack. Following closely behind was Dream All Day, a smartly compiled treasury of their best-known work for Geffen Records, with five tasty rarities appended. A live acoustic album, In Case You Didn't Feel Like Plugging In, has just been released, and a four-CD boxed set, At Least, At Last, is on the way as well.
